  1. I made a batch of videos going through assembly, disassembly, and some modification explanations for CZ 75 and SP-01 pistols. A member from here came over to the czfirearms.us forum and asked me about them before they were posted, so I figured I would share them here. I just changed them to "public", so anyone can find them. I have some more that I am editing and uploading, but this is the bulk of them for now. I'm not a professional videographer so forgive the shortcomings of me and/or my equipment at times. Hope these help you fine gentlemen and ladies out! If you have questions, requests, or suggestions just let me know. Here's the thread I'm posting this to on the czfirearms.us forum. There are some crazy smart people over there that are really knowledgeable about CZ's that are always helpful if you have more questions. Plus CZ Custom and Cajun Gun Works are pretty active there. Anyways, like I said, I hope this helps and thank you all for the information you post here. I lurk here often and appreciate all the great shooting help you all share. http://www.czfirearms.us/index.php?topic=85985.0 The link to the playlist on YouTube.
  2. Can you guys please help me diagnose my Failure to Feed issue that I witnessed today during practice. The rim of the case did not rise up and under the extractor. I shot roughly 150 rounds prior to failure and another 200 after it without any failure what so ever. Gun was thoroughly cleaned and extractor w. spring was replaced prior to the practice. I changed the extractor since during my last match I got a failure to eject and also during an recent practice. Facts, CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow 11 lbs recoil spring (CZUB) used for ~10k 13 lbs main spring same usage New extractor & spring (changed before practice) Regular SP-01 18rd mags with springs that have been used for ~15k Chamber is nice and shiny. Factory ammo. The new extractor does not bind or feel rough during the loading action, not even if I slowly assist the slide forward when loading. Everything is smooth. Can it be that the mag springs are getting old? Can it be that the recoil spring is getting old? Can the extractor be sitting to shallow, need to remove some material from the extractor "depth pad"? Combination of above? I do not think that I bumped the slide stop lever, this might induce problems during slide reciprocation. I've had problems with that earlier due to really high support hand grip. The attached picture of the recoils spring is old vs new (11 lbs czub).
  3. I'm officially making the move to (as I've read many other open shooters call it) "The Dark Side". A Little Background: I've been shooting Limited Major for about 14 months, starting with a Glock 35, and switching to a CZ 75 Tactical Sport back in April. My life can pretty much be defined in two parts: life before my Tactical Sport, and life after my Tactical Sport. I've posted plenty of pics and info in the CZ pic threads, so I won't go into any more detail than saying I've made most of the "upgrades" (you could argue the TS doesn't need any) you can make via the Custom Shop, and some grip/frame modification and Cerakoting. The gun has been phenomenally reliable and shoots soooo good. So naturally, since I have an awesome pistol I love, it's time to buy another. I had initially planned on shooting Limited for another year, but as this year was wrapping up, I got impatient and decided it would be WAY more fun to just take the plunge. I've put aside just over $3,000 at this point, and I'm ready to make a purchase. I looked at all kinds of options, and I've whittled it down to a Czechmate... or an STI Trubor. I'm probably 90/10 on my choice. The Czechmate is an obvious choice for me for a LOT of reasons: It's built on the exact same gun I'm shooting currently. Aside from learning to pick up the dot and a much different recoil impulse, I would theoretically have a shorter learning curve, and going back and forth from Limited to Open would be easy. All the parts and upgrades I have for my TS (mag extensions, extended safety, etc.) could transfer back and forth between the two guns. It's an awesome value. I wouldn't need to purchase additional mags, etc. My TS is so phenomenally reliable (and I have a lot of working knowledge of the platform) and I can't help but assume the Czechmate would be as well. I want to shoot 9mm Major, and these forums seem to indicate the Czechmate runs very well in 9mm Major. An STI 2011 is obviously enticing for a number of reasons, but these are the major considerations that still have me on the fence: Absolutely ridiculous amount of aftermarket support, knowledge, and market share in shooting sports. Based on the survey data that USPSA published in Front Sight from the 2014 Nationals, everyone and their mom shoots the 2011 platform, including the most successful shooters in the sport. Therefore, they MUST be awesome... right? However, I have also heard a fair amount of negative things about some of the (arguably) "lower end" STI's like the Trubor that you don't hear about in custom 2011's, Infinities, etc. I won't get into the things I've heard (and witnessed at matches) but I do have a silly belief that spending this kind of money on a competition gun means it should run and run and run. Based on the background I provided, can you guys give me some input on my choice? If you think the 2011 is the platform to go with, please explain to me why. Basically, I'm buying a Czechmate unless some experienced STI owners can convince me here that the Trubor (or similar) is the better choice. One last thing: I know spending some more $$$ can get me a 2011 that will run like a sewing machine. However, at this point in my life, $3k is what I have to work with. Also, I wouldn't be opposed to shooting a used 2011 open gun, but they seem to be in pretty high demand, and I don't want to sit around too long waiting for that "perfect deal".
  4. So I couldn't find ANY info on the internet on this topic, so I'm beginning a new thread. I own a CZ 75 Tactical Sport and do all my own gunsmithing. I've done a lot of work to my gun, all of it myself. I'll attach a list at the bottom of this page. As many of you probably know, through CZ USA and CZ Custom (http://czcustom.com/CZ75SAOTrigger.aspx), you can buy a flat-blade trigger for the Tactical Sport. Pretty cool, right? Well, for dudes like me with monster hands (and/or long fingers) that trigger sits so far back in the trigger guard that my trigger finger looks like a pirate hook to get the pad of my finger tip on the trigger for the perfect "press". It had a great feel, but I can't manipulate the trigger fast enough with my finger shaped like a booger-hook, so I went searching elsewhere for custom triggers for the TS, and the ONLY place to get them (someone correct me if I'm wrong but I scoured the interwebs looking) is on the CZ UB website. For those that don't know, the CZ corporation can be broken down into three divisions that sell stuff (in regards to competition pistols): CZ UB - (Uhersky Brod) - The CZ mothership in the Czech Republic, where all the cool but hard-to-find stuff comes from. (Like the Tactical Sport Orange) CZ USA - (Kansas, USA) - The CZ distributor for the US. They import from the CZ mothership, and sell much of what CZ UB sells, but not ALL of it (or it's hard to get). CZ Custom - (Arizona, USA) - The "Custom Shop" for CZ. They do business as "Ghost Products". This shop is run by Angus Hobdell, a Grand Master and team CZ shooter and know-it-all (in a very good way). They sell much of what CZ USA/UB sells, plus many products in-house that you can ONLY get there. I've navigated this maze for many months now as I built up my Tactical Sport. So with this topic of "what comes from where" covered, the rest of this will make more sense. CZ UB's online shop sells some really cool stuff, that is ONLY available through their online shop. This includes the custom triggers I'm going to discuss. So they make several different trigger "shoes" (just the trigger itself, that doesn't affect pull weight, etc.) that are apparently designed for different hand sizes and purposes. This is RAD. STI/SVI 2011's are about the only other pistols I know of that you can find triggers designed for different ergonomics. The problem is, you have to order them through the international CZ UB site, and shipping is expensive, and more importantly (for me) was how long it would take to get to me, would the trigger get through customs, etc. Well, I jumped through the hoops and bought one, and holy crap is it worth it. So with that said, here is a link to the shop where these can be found: http://www.shop-cz.com/sporting-parts-ipsc/c-1204/ Here's what they offer, all in a variety of colors: ^This is CZ UB's Straight Trigger. Slightly Different than the one CZ Custom sells. ^This is CZ UB's "Target" Trigger. Has slightly more curve than the factory Tactical Sport trigger. ^This is CZ UB's Aluminum Trigger that is identical in shape to the stock TS trigger, just aluminum rather than polymer. ^This is the "small hands" trigger. It moves the curve of the trigger very far back in the trigger guard, so it's easily reachable for small hands. ^This is the "large hands/long finger" trigger. It has a shape like the target trigger, but moved forward to INCREASE the reach to the trigger, so that the aformentioned "booger hook" isn't an issue, and someone with longer fingers can comfortably use the pad of the finger to manipulate the trigger... like you SHOULD be doing. At the current exchange rate, these come out to about $25! Totally a deal in my book, despite paying for added shipping costs. So I went through the purchase process to get the long finger trigger, and wanted to share my experience so if anyone else out there has considered the same thing but wasn't sure about it, they could at least use my experience to know if it's worth it. So here's what I did: I went to the site, and created an account (which you must do first). I then added the trigger to the cart, and began checking out like you would at any other online shop. I used Google to check what the total was going to come out to before I placed my order. I selected "Worldwide Express" shipping, that was about $50. Considering this is the ONLY place to get these, I was willing to pay this for the trigger. The checkout process asks for everything but payment info when you "confirm" your order. In total, it came in at about $80 shipped. I immediately got an email asking for payment info through a secure online payment site. I entered all the info and hit "confirm". Several hours later (I assumed when they opened up shop on the other side of the world) I got an email confirming everything, and offering a cheaper shipping option. I replied that I did want the express shipping (assuming it would still take weeks). I got a final confirmation email, including a DHL confirmation number. This was on Wednesday, October 7th. To my astonishment, the expensive shipping I paid for was VERY fast. The trigger was at my door on Monday, October 12th. It installed into the gun perfectly. Holy crap was it worth it. It acheived exactly what I was after. In my personal opinion, it was absolutely worth the $50 shipping cost on top of the relatively cheap $25 cost of the trigger. The ONLY thing I would have done different would be to throw a few more things in the shopping cart to get the most of my $50 shipping cost. There you have it. Whether you were aware of their custom triggers or not, or knew of them but weren't sure about ordering from an international online shop, it was painless and the result was great, especially if you consider biting the bullet for $50 shipping worth it to ensure your expensive pistol has the perfect trigger for you in it. Considering my CZ 75 Tactical Sport is worth well over $2,000 at this point, it did not seem too crazy to me to spend $80 on a trigger that "fits" me perfectly... especially since there is only one place to get it. I'll get some pics posted of the finished gun soon, but for now, here's a phone pic of the trigger after I got it out of the packaging.
  5. When buying a used cz shadow how do i know what model it is or was so i can use the correct approved production weight. There doesnt seem to be very many differences between the shadow models except some have the adjustable sights. However it seems like a lot of peple take off the adjustable sight and put on a fixed. So my quesion is; is there a way to figure out the model by the S/N. When i go to a major match how do they determine which model CZ shadow i have because they all seem to say cz shadow on the slide? If i buy a used accu shadow how do i know it was an accu shadow from the custom shop and not a later upgrade which would be an illegal mod? Thanks

    solo 1000

    situation is CZ 75 with BBI 125 (old coating) needs a 1.1 OAL to pass the plunk and spin test ----My batch of Solo 1000 is slow and 4.15 grains gets me about 128 PF = crappy groups I seem to remember my CZs like a 135ish pPF to be more accurate ---With a slow lot, has anyone loaded over 4.15 safely??? Load data shows a max of 3.9 grains ----Too cold to chrono and build up traditionally as i did up to 4.15 over the warmer months = no pressure signs 4.3/4 wouldn't even be close to +p velocities and would not be compressed with a 125 opinions??? Mike
  7. I picked up an SP-01 Accu Shadow from CZC as my first traditional DA pistol (been shooting 1911s and S&W M&Ps up to now). Learning the DA first shot will take some doing. I'm wondering if folks typically run these pistols in Production (hammer down) or Iron Sighted Pistol (cocked & locked) when running them in Steel Challenge. I'm leaning toward Production and the associated learning curve since that's where this pistol would play in USPSA.
